This month we spring forward into daylight saving time. The origin of daylight saving time dates back much more than a century, when ancient civilizations adjusted their daily schedules to the sun. Britain introduced daylight saving time 100 years ago and was quickly followed by countries worldwide.
Love it or hate it, daylight saving is a reality for most of us except for the couple of States that don’t recognize daylight saving such as Arizona and Hawaii. For those that hate it, you have a lovely stubborn British campaigner (William Willett) you can thank. From an economic standpoint, daylight saving time is thought to help those in retail and sport.
William Willett, is credited as the “Champion” of Daylight Saving Time. What many don’t know about him is that he was an avid golfer. Willett hated having to cut short his round when it got dark in the early evening. This is one of the many reasons why he proposed to move the clock ahead an hour to preserve more daylight in the summer and was the foundation for the phrase, “Spring Ahead, Fall Back” and gave golfers like us more time to play after work, well into the evening. Tijeras Creek Golf Club now offers, after work golf clinics.
For those of you that put the curtains up to block out the sun to sleep through the early morning sunrise, you now have an extra hour after work to get outdoors! It may be tough with one less hour of sleep and though daylight saving time may be a sign that spring is right around the corner, the takeaway is you now have more time to play golf!

Daily dining specials are featured on the menu and guests can enjoy dining out on the patio overlooking the 10th and 18th holes.
